Our top tracks of the year list pieced together the soundtrack of some of the highest peaks of 2017. Club moments where everything aligns, and nirvana is reached.
The top albums list is the sound in between. The accompaniment to creeping train rides through serene landscapes, summer days in the park, bleary-eyed commutes and dealing with emotions. Of absent day dreams, rinse & repeat listens, and loud sing-a-longs at balmy festival stages. And dotted through, there’s plenty of club bangers too.
